I had know idea you can use tubes/bulbs from Walmart, etc. that would do the same thing for live plants in a fish tank. I figured they were something special for aquatic plants......specifically for "aquariums and planted tanks."
Got ya! Well next time you need a bulb for any tank...go to Lowes, HOmedepot, Walmart...safe yourself the shipping and the high price Dep what you got locally, look for GE, Phillips, Salvina, Bright effects. They'll look the same then what you got there, just labeled with different names (Mostly labeled Daylight or Ultimate daylight); then get XYZ wattage you need and on the bottom or back of the pack's look for a Kelvin rating around 5-6500K.
The Bright effects I use come in 2-packs for like $2 or 2.5 are somewhat whitish/ milky looking bulbs not twisted, labeled Daylight @6500K and 7w.
